A landing threshold is the point on a runway where the distance available for a landing begins. The landing threshold is normally located at the beginning of the runway. Its position may be separately marked with white paint as a continuous crossbar on the runway. The point is only drawn in OSM if it has been marked as such. In the photo, you can see the dark-coloured touchdown point that lies behind the threshold.

In cases where the landing threshold has been moved further back from the beginning of the runway (displaced_threshold), such marking is mandatory.

There can also be a stopway before the landing threshold.

How to map

Draw a node node on the runway at the marked position and add
